Archbishop Nikitas in Wood Green

On Sunday 3rd March 2024, His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain presided during Matins and celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God in Wood Green, North London. He was joined in the service by Revd Presbyter Petros Georgiou. The Revd Archdeacon Dr. George Tsourous and Revd Deacon Georgios Ntallas also served.

His Eminence Archbishop Nikitas addressed the congregation with a profound message that resonated deeply within the hearts of all present. He spoke of the enduring mercy and unconditional love of our Heavenly Father, as exemplified in the parable of the Prodigal Son. His Eminence reminded us that no matter how far we may stray, the path to reconciliation and forgiveness is always open. He emphasised the importance of humility, repentance, and the joyous return to God’s grace. Drawing from the Gospel, Archbishop Nikitas encouraged everyone to reflect on their own lives, identifying moments of departure and considering the journey back to the loving embrace of the Father. This powerful sermon underscored the timeless message of hope and redemption that lies at the heart of our faith, inspiring us to seek a closer relationship with God through genuine contrition and a sincere desire to return to His fold.

At the conclusion of the services, a Memorial service was held, during which His Eminence was joined by clergy from the nearby Parish of St Barnabas, including Revd Protopresbyter Panayiotis Dik and Deacon Gregorios-Palamas Florides.
